Long freeze-drying times are not necessary during the preparation of thin sections for X-ray microanalysis.

Abstract

The temperature profile that occurs when a brass block warms up in a vacuum evaporation unit was determined. Freshly drawn human blood was concentrated by centrifugation, and the pellet was cryofixed and cryosectioned. The cryosections were subject to different freeze-drying protocols, using a freeze-drier with a temperature-controlled stage, to determine… (More)
